    I bought this book a few years ago, but only just got around to reading it, and I m rather glad I waited on it It s a series of 14 loosely connected stories set mostly in Galway, Ireland the safest city and while Galway is pretty but mostly dull after a few days, this book is ugly and anything but boring Though I m not sure who I would recommend it to.

    This moderately amusing collection of short stories would have been enjoyable if the author hadn t spent so much effort in trying to prove to the reader how damned clever she was And there s an archness about her style that muffles any emotional resonance the better stories in the collection might achieve There is evidence of talent, but a woeful lack of discipline on the author s part.
